Perhaps the most obvious benefit of paint and sip classes is how much fun they are! If you’ve ever thought art classes may be little too pretentious or tricky for beginners, these laidback workshops will quickly dispel your doubts. Wine and painting classes are designed to be encouraging, entertaining and entirely beginner-friendly, guaranteeing a light-hearted atmosphere with plenty of opportunities for giggles and banter. In fact, you may find that it’s incredibly easy to master the fundamentals of painting in such a no-pressure environment, particularly when you have a glass of wine in hand!


Learning how to paint can help you cultivate some calm

In these tricky times, it’s more important than ever to dedicate some time each week to switching off and giving your mind and body the chance to thoroughly relax. Creative activities such as crafting, pottery and painting have been found to have a significant, positive impact on people’s wellbeing, helping to reduce stress, improve focus and promote mindfulness. 

Sign yourself up for a brush and sip session and discover the meditative effects of painting for yourself. When you are absorbed in rendering an object or a beautiful landscape on canvas, there’s no room for worries, and you will find yourself entering that delicious state of flow. Your stress levels will fall, your pulse will steady and you will feel much calmer than you did when you first showed up to class.


Form new connections over a glass of wine and a canvas

Maintaining strong social connections is one of the easiest ways to stay happy and healthy. Whether you’re keen to catch up with old friends or maybe make some new ones, booking a paint and drink workshop could be the perfect solution. It doesn’t matter if you live in Melbourne, Adelaide or Canberra, these engaging sessions are a great place to meet other people in your local area who share your newfound passion for painting.

On the other hand, to reconnect with some of your closest mates, you could organise a private class just for your group. That way, you’ll have plenty of chances to swap anecdotes, jokes and laughter while you learn how to paint stunning artworks.


Keep things interesting with different painting techniques 

Boredom caused by our usual mundane routines can make us feel like we’re stagnating and can even trigger feelings of stress or depression. To keep our minds active and boost our wellbeing, it’s important to try new things and cultivate a child-like sense of curiosity. That’s where wine and painting classes can help! 

During these immersive art sessions, you’ll get to learn all different kinds of techniques and experiment with different colours, mediums and textures. Even your tastebuds will be able to enjoy plenty of tantalising variation, as you get to sample different wines or cocktails and perhaps some tasty nibbles too!


Paint your way to greater confidence

Learning new skills and discovering an impressive new talent is a great way to supercharge your self-esteem and add an extra spring to your step. Sign up for paint and sip sessions and you will benefit from the expert guidance of a skilled local artist with plenty of tips and techniques to share. You may be a total beginner at your first class, but it won’t be long before you are creating all kinds of spectacular artworks to proudly display at home.


Mark special occasions with a glass of wine and a blank canvas

Having something special to look forward to helps us stay positive and creating magical memories with those we love is one of the most important things we can do in life. If someone close to you has a big milestone coming up – whether it’s your best friend’s birthday, your sister’s approaching wedding day, or your parents’ anniversary – celebrating it in style is guaranteed to bring you a warm fuzzy feeling inside.

To mark a big occasion in a unique and enjoyable way, why don’t you book a paint party for your nearest and dearest? Drinking wine and picking up fascinating painting techniques is sure to be something that everyone will enjoy and it’s also a wonderful opportunity to make memories together.
